Upward Scholars helps low-income adults, mostly immigrants, overcome the financial and academic barriers that limit their success. We provide scholarships that cover students' textbooks and transportation to college, laptops, tutors, mentors, and additional support services.
Upward Scholars enables low-income adults to continue their education, get better jobs, and serve as role models and advocates for their children.
Upward Scholars depends on community support. We need tutors and mentors to work with students one-on-one and volunteers to practice English with students at Conversation Club.
